Concept Shoot -- something different!

Postby blue-eden » Sat Feb 26, 2011 5:24 am

I had a great shoot last weekend, it was really fun!

Model came with some concept ideas (ie. costumes, themes, story lines, specific poses not necessarily portraiture) so I let her run a bit wild while I did some practice on composition.

I have to admit, I didn't "get" some of her concepts :lol: You'll see....
Lifted off Photobucket, so not as sharp or high quality as the originals.


She just got new Doc Martens and wanted to show them off. :lol:
I have several in each of these locations, different poses and expressions and processing.

Classic processing. I really dislike the pose, but it was one she REALLY wanted.

Image

Clean.

Image

Vintage.

Image

Ok, totally didn't get this "storyline". I think she saw it in a movie?? Puritan theme, austere woman, etc.

Image

I love eyelash shots.

Image

My posing. Victorian vintage.

Image

Top hat for an "androgyny" theme we didn't get to. I need to warm up the camera right eye, somehow the adjustment got masked off.

Image

Spur of the moment. We got rained out for a while, you can see the clouds over the mountains behind her.

Image

I have so much more from this shoot, about 160 images in all. I've been blogging some slowly.

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful pics. I love the one of her looking in the mirror!

What do you mean by classic processing? :oops:

Blue you've got some really pretty shots. I don't get the story line either. She reminds me of one of the models you had about a year ago.

Thank you!

Same model, she just got weirder (in a good way!) . :lol: She runs her own blog, mostly images from movies, magazines, etc she likes so I think she was posing to have images of herself in the style of the kind she likes?

Laura, classic is with clean processing, just the colours are a bit deeper than in real life and the midtones are richer. Colours are saturated, but the skin remains true to life.
